Lagging body part twice a week???
We all have our "problem" body part and mine is chest. I have the ability to gain great strength but the size comes slowly. I train every body part once a week but am going to start training chest every 5 days for about a month.
Whats everones input in training a body part twice a week or even every 5 days?????

i'm actually about to start doing something like that but with all body parts... I'm gonna do it for 12 weeks with my cycle...
tues-legs, calves, tris
fri- chest, shoulders
sat and sun - off
sat and sun-off
sat and sun- off
sat and sun 0ff
I might throw a day off in the middle somewere but thats pretty much how it looks and starts over after week 4. A friend of mine who is a personal trainer swears by this workout when oncycle... but i don't know first hand if it works... i'll get back to u in 12 weeks haha

You could also try high intensity techniques such as superset, strip sets, negatives, and so forth. There are many options for you to do.

Just hit the lagging parts harder than before, and keep upping the intensity till they start growing, if they still wont react, go up to 3 times in 2 weeks rather than jumping to twice a week straight away

All great info. I have done and still do all that you listed Squat. Gets me a nice shape but its that thickness I want.
James you have a great point in saying to work your way up. Thats exactly what I'm doing. Once every 5 days IMO is more than enough. Twice in a week wouldnt give me enough time to recoop.

Muscle soreness is judged by pain receptors and we all have a different amount of them. So sometimes you wont think you're sore but the muscle will in fact be in repairing mode. Better to regiment yourself around a training schedule. That way it will give enough time for each individual body part to heal and repair itself.
